It looks like you have about 2'+ of base extending past the right side, I figured the walkway moved more left then expected... and wheres that GEOtextile hanging out of the sides?!?
The walk is installed on a slope. After the aggregate was placed and compacted I came through on the loader on the upper side and shaved about 8-10 inches of earth out at an angle, tapering down to the walk. So where you see soil/or don't see aggregate is where I graded the soil down to taper into the walk. And the soil is over the aggregate, which gets backfilled with soil anyway.

All our jobs have not one, but two layers of fabric. The first layer under the aggregate is usually way greater than needed, never less than needed. After the base installation is completed, lines are painted for where the pavers will go, and the 2nd layer is cut to go within the lines, wasting very little, and exposing very little past the sand When you work with me - you learn to become very diligent and you learn that I am very specific with no room for nonsence.

You more than welcome to check out my website and attend a paver installation seminar in an area near you:
